The first paraplegics to run the Rome Marathon using the exoskeleton

Carmine Consalvi and Nicoletta Tinti face a new sport challenge: are the first complete paraplegics to attend the Rome Marathon, using a wearable exoskeleton. Sunday, March 22, Carmine and Nicoletta will walk viale delle Terme di Caracalla, for about a kilometer, showing how the exoskeleton has revolutionized their lives. The initiative, sponsored by the Saint Lucia Foundation in Rome, aims to get to know this technology, which promises to change the daily lives of so many people today forced into a wheelchair.
